On his future kingship, he said he is aware the roles of Prince of Wales and king are completely different. Britain's monarch is barred from interfering in politics.

Charles has been criticised in the past for his views on topics such as the environment and architecture, but said he recognises being heir to the throne and head of state are two different roles. I'm not that stupid, I do realise that it is a separate exercise being sovereign.

Harry's father Prince Charles agreed to step in as a replacement, and millions of viewers watched on as they made their way to the altar together, with Harry turning and saying, "Thank you Pa" when they reached him.

He said: "But I always wonder what meddling is".

Harry, 34, approached Prince Charles, who celebrates his 70th birthday next week, to step in after Meghan's father, Thomas Markle, was unable to come to the Windsor Castle nuptials.

The eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II - formally known as the Prince of Wales - has always been seen as interfering because of his private lobbying of ministers and public statements on a range of subjects from architecture to the environment.

Asked about accusations that he had been "meddling" in public issues, he responded: "If it's meddling to worry about the inner cities as I did 40 years ago, then if that's meddling I'm proud of it".

Charles' eldest son, William, expresses his desire to have his father spend more time with his three children, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 6 months. "I suspect quite a few of you may too have grandchildren or will do soon", Prince Charles said, according to Radar Online.

"He will get down on his knees and crawl about with them for hours, you know making amusing noises and laughing and my grandchildren adore him, absolutely adore him", she says.

"So, there's nothing laid down, that's what makes it so interesting, challenging and of course complicated".
